    I've had it come out very salty after smoking I've put it in back cold water for several hours and re-smoked it and it was fine. Be interested in how your goose comes out in a week Luigi. For me the pickling spice I used this time made it great.

    Will definitely let you know, sir. I, too, used pickling spice. Basically smoke + corned = pastrami. :)

    Holy cow, smoked this past weekend. All Aleutians. Just absolutely fantastic! Tastes very, very similar to pastrami. :cool:

    Damn, that looks amazing!
    I'd have to leave the skin on for the fat and hope it would melt it your mouth like pastrami fat does.
    What type of meat slicer do you have? I'm looking for one that won't break the bank seeing that I only use a slicer a few times per year.

    Corning definitely the way to go with geese as far as I'm concerned. I've also done bear roasts and venison.Ilike the pickling spices in mine.

    Not bothering with the skin and I cook it pretty dry on purpose. Wet sticks together in the vac sealed bags.I think the skin would fall off and take all the pepper with it.

    I got a really nice old slicer off FB marketplace for $225 two years back. People are buying them at auctions now and this they are made of gold. I used to have a Nesco and it worked rather well, but it 5 minutes on and 10 -15 minutes rest to let the motor cool down.

    Anybody ever corn venison? Does it come out too dry? Would hate to waste venison...
